Kansas, in the news. Again. Some more.

And as usual of late, it ain't pretty:

A bit from the article:

Here's more of that slippery slope analysts have been talking about in the wake of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision. If you can now legally discriminate against women in the workplace, Kansas religious conservatives are thinking, you can legally discriminate against the gays.

The Associated Press reported this weekend that social conservatives believe they have an opening to bring the state's religious freedom bill back in 2015. The legislation failed this spring; it passed the House, but stalled in the Senate after significant backlash from business groups. It would have prevented businesses from being sued if they refused to serve LGBT people for religious reasons.
"We are not going to let it die. We are very committed," Rev. Terry Fox, a leading Southern Baptist minister, told the AP. "The Body of Christ is a powerful movement when it comes together."
There's a cheery thought, huh?
It begs the question, though.  I can see the bumper sticker now:  WWJH?
Who WOULD Jesus hate?
